IBE: TEST DRIVE is also back for its tenth edition!

A real driving experience that enables all visitors with appropriate licences to test drive the new buses and minibuses provided by the exhibitors directly on the fairgrounds and on roads open to normal urban traffic.
An unmissable opportunity to test all the new innovations of the bus industry, which has always chosen Rimini and IBE as the place to present them to the public.
